The defense is trying to make the case ... Dr. Conrad Murray is a great doctor with a pristine reputation -- and to prove their point, they're calling several of Murray's former patients to the stand ... each with glowing reviews.

First up ... a heart attack patient named Gerry Causey -- who told the jury, Murray saved his life. Causey said Murray is "the best doctor" he's ever had.

Interestingly, Causey told jurors he didn't want to be sedated during the operation because he was too scared ... so Murray didn't put him under.

He also said Murray took great care in explaining everything he was doing.

Prosecutors made sure to point out -- Murray's treatment was done in a monitored environment with the help of a large staff.

1025_Andrew_Guest_MJtrialPatient #2 Andrew Guest said Dr. Conrad Murray performed 2 different procedures on his heart in 2002 -- telling jurors, "That man sitting there is the best doctor I’ve ever seen."

Guest said Murray often called him on weekends to check up on him.

During cross-examination, lead prosecutor David Walgren asked Guest, "I don't mean to be flip ... but  he never give you Propofol in your bedroom did he?"

Guest shot back, "I am alive today because of that man."

Patient # 3 -- Lunette Sampson
Updated 10/26/11 at 9:35 AM

1025_Lunette_Sampson_MJtrialLunette Sampson -- who suffered 3 heart attacks in 2008 and 2009 -- told the jury Murray saved her life, fixing another doctor's botched operation.

During cross examination, Walgren suggested Murray was able to fix Sampson's heart because he had access to her medical records ... a privilege Murray never afforded the ER doctors, who scrambled to save Michael Jackson's life.

Patient # 4 -- Dennis Hix

1025_Dennis_hicks_MJtrialDennis Hix testified Dr. Murray placed about 13 stints in his heart ...  for free.

Hix said Dr. Murray also operated on his brother's heart free of charge ... telling jurors, "I’m 66.  I've gone to a lot of doctors, A LOT of doctors, and I’ve never had one who gave me the care he did."

Patient # 5 -- Ruby Mosley
Updated 10/26/11 at 10:20 AM


1025_Ruby_Mosely_MJtrialRoby Mosley told jurors Dr. Murray couldn't have been greedy because he opened up a clinic in one of Houston's poorest neighborhoods in honor of his father.

Murray fought back tears as Mosley described how he selflessly treated patients who couldn't afford his care.

All I heard from these patients is that Murray understood and provided above-average standard of care to each of them. For me, this begs the question: why did Michael Jackson receive such diminished care; no monitoring, no records, no emergency plan, no equipment in the event of an emergency. To me, the patients' testimonies highlight the fact that this guy killed Michael Jackson and did it knowingly and recklessly.

Those poor kids, first taken away from their mothers, then having their "father" taken away from them. Now they are only left with a "family" that will try to milk every dollar from them.

Or he was dumb enough or desperate enough to take the money and give his client what he wanted when he wanted in such a manner (at his home, without the paper trail of renting even more hospital equipment) that was dangerous and stupid. And stupid may just be the argument the defense is after.

I had four stents implanted in three arteries in one procedure back in 2003. I was given pain meds, but I wasn't knocked-out - I was awake the entire time watching the procedure on the TV monitor, and I was able to talk to the cardiologist while he was doing it. I'm therefore wondering why it was such a big deal that Dr. Murray didn't anesthetize the one patient for a single stent procedure.

He didn't have much of a childhood. Work was his play.He sat in an corner looking, hoping to find someone asking him to join a game. Silently inside crying a hurtful pain it cut like a knife into his little boy heart.How much how much he loved to be a regular child.No childhood just a deep pain.A dancer a singer a master of sound.He stood on a windowsil his nose pressed agenst the windows glass looking at children enjoying his lost past.His Face so Beautiful a gods perfection he could not see. His pain just Blinding him not really guiding him.He never complaiedt he never cryed inside the pain of a lost past.He sang so beautiful like a Bird in the tree to please the crowd and make Nations happy.His Rich life it didnt fill him with happyness or joy.Cant buy up a lost Mans Joy.....a childhood that he sooo missed.what Beautiful heart a sweet man a golden soul.How much I wish I could give him his wish to relive a childhood happy and free..............

Have you ever stepted into a room filled with Crystal chandeliers from the ceiling, so beautyful so lit?A fireplace burning, the smell of wood burning filling the room? An old big room with heavey wood and wooden carvings??Big windows so Royal and nice?? A sound of tunes coming from an old Piano from another room, you sitting and listening to every sound??Closing your eyes and dreaming, getting lost into another time??A feeling of warm and comfort all around. You're safe and happy, nothing can hurt you. Wishing and knowing you belong to an other time.The old chair by the fire giving you a joy of happyness. A cradel you fell into to shelter your body, your inner soul.Laying there you glance into the fire, you look to the window, you see the snow falling, dancing a dance to the music playing a love tune.Time standing still in an old Victorian Room.The smell of white roses rushing into your Nose like a Perfume from a secret past.You feel like a dancer wanting to dance but to tired to do so, just laying there and listening to a lovely song. Looking over to the other room, a Black Piano sooo old and glimering Black. Sitting there, a Man with Raven black curls drapeing over his shoulders. A beautiful Porcelin Face,his body so perfect.He smiles like an angel at you and sees into your eyes.Playing his song of love to please you and only you.So kind of a Man a loving soul.His long fingers creating a new song...a melody so heart felt so loving. How I love this room, this Chair, the window, the Piano.An escape from daily life and work...How blessed we are to have so Beautiful Artists and Masters of Music in our wold!!!
